I nixed the collar. I added a couple inches to the hem so it falls in the middle of my knee. This dress is so comfy it's like wearing pajamas. What's not to like about that?! I love the busy print matched with the shirring on the seam along the side of waist... quite flattering I do think myself. I often work with solids and this is a fun departure without being over the top. I am digging the raglan sleeves, too.
The neckline isn't perfection, but I'm not trying to win the blue ribbon at the state fair here.
